Many locals have been asking the question “why do we need a parking garage in charming Jupiter Inlet Village?”  The answer comes from Jupiter’s Town Council.  Several years ago, the Town Council put into place planning policies that would support a development pattern for our funky fishing village.  The idea was to fill the quaint area with limited height buildings, no taller than 3.5 stories. Additionally, the idea was to maintain the smaller, narrower streets with on street parking with different architectural designs for a variety of businesses and residential units keeping the “funky feel”.

When the Town Council met with the Community Redevelopment Agency, an important consideration was to minimize the potential for large parking lots.  Encouraging property owners to maximize waterfront access and the being “on the water” experience.  In concurrence, both the Council and Commission wished to avoid a situation where waterfront property would be used primarily for parking cars.
 
Understanding that favorite fun spots, like Guanabanas, Square Grouper Tiki Bar and others within Jupiter Inlet Village, their employees and patrons definitely need parking accommodations - a solution was sought.   An 800 space, 4 level parking garage is planned to accommodate off-site parking located on Parkway Street (walking distance). The proposed parking garage will be located at the southern end of the Jupiter Inlet Village.    It will be just north of the “soon to be completed” Jupiter Mini Golf.

The new parking garage located near the Kempe building and directly across the street from the Waterfront Properties and Club Communities corporate offices, will allow people to walk or take a shuttle to their destination. The parking garage will be the height of a three-story building; the fourth floor will not have a roof.
